Wedding gifts in Vietnam

A friend at the newspaper I write for is getting married soon. He’s a great young guy with too big glasses, marvelous English and bad taste in beer selection. My Facebook newsfeed has been plastered with photos of the engagement party with all its pageantry and spectacle and his taste in brides is excellent. (I hope I get a pay rise out of this...!)
